I BOW BEFORE THE WORTHY ONES - PERFECT SOULS .
I BOW BEFORE THE PERFECTED BEINGS - LIBERATED BODILESS SOULS.
I BOW BEFORE THE HEADS OF THE JAIN CONGREGATIONS.
I BOW BEFORE THE ASCETIC TEACHERS.
I BOW BEFORE THE ASCETIC ASPIRANTS IN THE WORLD.
These fivefold salutations, which destroys all sins, and among all great things are the greatest.
May I always entertain a feeling of friendliness for all living beings in the world;
May the spring of sympathy in my heart be ever pebbling for those in agony and affliction;
May I never feel angry with the vile, the vicious and the wrongly-directed;
May there be such an adjustment of things that I should always remain tranquil in dealing with them.
May happiness be the lot of all; May distress come near none;
May the world pour forth one continuous eternal peal of delight;
May Dharma become the main topic of conversation in every household;
May evil cease to be easily wrought;
By increase of wisdom and merit of works,
May all realize the purpose of human life- Moksha.
May there be mutual love in the world; may delusion dwell at a distance;
May no one ever utter unpleasant speech or words that are harsh, with his tongue;
May men, heroes of the time, whole-heartedly work in their country's cause;
May all understand the Laws of Truth and joyfully sorrow and suffering endure.
Om, peace, Shanti ! Shanti ! Shanti
